The paper I’d ordered came in at the UW bookstore in Tacoma. I drove down to pick it up. I now have 20 sheets of 22×30 Strathmore Series 500 Mixed Media paper with which to make some sketchbooks. Cheaper to order and have it delivered there than to pay shipping from Dick Blick!
Since it was such a beautiful morning, I brought my sketch kit. I sat in the sun on the patio across from the Washington History Museum to again sketch the classic view.
I used my reciprocal benefit from MOHAI to visit the Tacoma Museum of Art. I saw the George O’Keefe exhibit. No photos and I didn’t do any sketches. Photos not allowed but pencil sketching was.
I did sketch Leroy, the Big Pup by Scott Fife of Seattle. It’s made of cardboard, carpenter’s glue, and drywall screws. The 10-foot-tall Pup has become an icon of Tacoma Art Museum. He even has a LinkedIn page. “Languages: Dog” Ha!
And he’s been made into a plush dog, available in the Museum shop.
